Some of my favs are Guinness, Stella's, Boddingtons, and Pacifico to name a few.
Haven't had any for three months and probably won't have much more in the future, goddamn health problems.
And while we are talking good beer, my two favorite beers that I had this past year are Utah Brewer's Coop's Alta Anniversary Ale and Bayern Brewing's Dragon's Breath, which is a dark hefeweizen. Sadly, Bayern brews cannot be found in the state of Utah.
My love for Gordy Hayward is unabashed.
The Unibrou and Chimay are Belgium abbey type ales. Somewhat heavy but very flavorful. They go awesome with a steak or big burger. People that like pilsner type brews typically hate the Belgium abbey style ales. Too much flavor.
Wish I could really help, but I'm more book smart about beer than I am experienced. Tons of beers listed here I've never tried and many I've never heard of.
I like Epic's Galloway Porter and 825 State Stout. Haven't had too many brown ales, but the few I've tried recently I've liked, but they haven't been from the LQ. Wasatch Evolution Ale is pretty good, although tastes a bit watery.
If you want what I consider a good example of an IPA I'd give Lagunitas IPA a try.
I might offer up some homebrew but I've been out. The cold weather has killed my motivation to get outside and make beer.
So, inspired by this thread I purchased Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale and Full Sail Limited Edition Brown Pub Series (avail for 90 days only according to the bottle) from the liquor store. Haven't tried them yet. Tune in tomorrow for my full report.
I also have inside info that another frequent poster has produced his own Brown Ale. Maybe that person should chime in with some advice, eh?
The Epic Spiral Jetty is one of my favorites and Chasing Tail.
You need to hop on a plane and head to Munich. We will first go to the a local brewery around the corner from the airport where they give you a white
horse if you can drink their strongest beer. From there we will come to my home town. Home to amazing local breweries, perhaps the best in bavaria.
The one a stonesthrow a way from from apartment was established in 1499. We'll start with a Keller Bier. Prepare to have your mind blown. This is what
beer tasted like ages ago. Less filter, and from the Keller, or basement. It's smooth, strong, and delicious. Necktar from the Gods good. After I pick you up
from the floor of the bar you will next try a Knappentrunk. A little darker, slight carmel flavor, smooth, but strong. At this point you may be doing the chicken dance,and be getting stares from the locals. Next will go with a Superator. Their strongest smoothest beer available. If you have any sense to you at this point we can hit up one of the 5 other breweries in the area.....they are all good.
Or you can just pick up a 6er of Miller Lite, and call it day.
I drank an EPIC beer, Sour Apple Sasoon or something like that tonight.
It was gross.
